June 3, 2013

Elder Tilley, Elder Clifford (from Mesa, AZ), Jesse and Denilson 

Hey Mom sorry I wrote you a letter, but then the internet went out, so then I saved the letter, but now it is not here. Jesse was baptized. He was not going to get baptized because he had a test on Saturday during the baptism but Friday afternoon he texted me and said that his test got moved so he was able to get baptized on that date! So we ran around on Friday trying to get everything ready for the baptism!

Lourenco and veronica are doing really well they marked a date to be baptized on the 28th of June which is a Miracle in it self, but a lot of things could go wrong! So please keep them in your prayers!

We learned a lot of things but on Sunday night we had a fireside about the 7 habits of a highly effective person! Which was really good! I feel like if Braden was there he would have been going nuts!:)

Haha I am just kind of like whatever and laughing that you were worried about it! :) that boat sailed a way along time ago and fortunately too!!! :) You can tell me any girls that get married its more just kind of fun to know! 

So this week we passed by Inacio and Elizabeth's house with President Kretly and President Kretly invited Elizabteth to pray to see if she should be baptized this Tuesday! (Tomorrow)  this was a three or 4 days ago. She said she would pray about it... long story short a lot of weird drama stuff went down and she is going to be baptized tomorrow at 8. I am really nervous that she is just going to be baptized because of all the pressure and not because she is converted. I am really nervous about the hole situation, So please pray for me and President Krelty and Inacio and Elizabeth!
Love You Elder Tilley

Nope I think I am good love you so much!

Logging off!!!!

(Preston) Love you Bro!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry I could not write more!!!

Haha I did not do very well either this week. But I have been studying about the Atonement the past while. One thing that I have learned from the District President (Stake President) is that God can’t do EVERYTHING/ANYTHING and just do what he wants. For example God cannot sin and things like that. Also if it were not for the Atonement God would not be able to save his children, Us! God is a perfectly just God and so if it were not for the Atonement God could not just save us... pretty interesting! Also I have learned little bit about the Laws of Justice and Mercy! God has to be perfectly Just and Perfectly Merciful, but it is impossible to be both without a mediator!  That is where Jesus Christ comes into play! He fulfills the law of Justice so that God can be merciful to us! But that still does not mean that we can do what ever we want and God will save us! God set up rules and guidelines (the commandments) for us to follow and if we follow ALL of them not just most or some of  them we will receive Exaltation if we do not then unfortunately we loose out! Obviously we all make mistakes and so that is why we have repentance so that we can be cleansed from our sins! Maybe this week we can both do better at studying more about the Atonement and find more scriptures to share with one another? Love you Becs!
I hope that you are doing well!
Keep being a great Girl!!!
Love you !!
